Primed For




Ohio State

3O-Man Squad
Leaves Today
For Columbus
iloytmen Hope For Points
In All 1vents -Stoller,
Owens Renew Rivalry
Primed to take the measure of the
powerful Ohio State track team Sat-
urday, Coach Charlie Hoyt and a 30-
man track squad will depart for Co-
lumbus this afternoon to begin what
they hope will be another champion-
ship year in Conference competition.
Strong in the longer distances, the
shot, discus and javelin, the Wolver-
ines plan to cash in on points in al-
mo:,t every event, although the high
jump may well prove an exception.
Saturday's meet will continue a
series of four outdoor encounters be-
tween Sam Stoller and Jesse Owens in
the dashes and broad jump, and
many are of the belief that Stoller
will take the measure of the "Scarlet
Scooter" in one of these remaining
duels. Owens beat Stoller last week
at Penn, but the Michigan sprinter
will get a crack at him both in the
Conference meet and in the Nationals
in addition to tomorrow's clash.
Weak In Pole Vault 1
Michigan will be weak in the pole
vault and high jump particularly.
Both Albritton and Walker can sur-
pass any height which Michigan's
Harold Robinson can jump, and the
big question seems to be whether
Robinson can take a third.
Both Nelson Droullard and Mor-
ris Morgan, the Wolverines' best
eligible pole-vaulters have a tough
time doing much more than 12 feet
and certainly can not be expected to
get better than a second.
Clayt Breisford, Harry O'Connell,
and Ray Fink should have little dif-
ficulty in' disposing of the Buck mil-
ers and Bill Staehle, Walt Stone, and
Paul Pinkerton will have it all over
the Scarlet two-mile men.
Owens May Not Hurdle
Moreau Hunt and Bob Osgood,
Michigan's star hurdlers will find
most of their competition in Dave
Albritton and Owens, if he is entered.
There is a strong probability how-
ever that Coach Larry Snyder may
only use. his Negro star in the cen-
tury, 220, and broad jump, and thus
limit his possible total to 15 points.
If Snyder elects to run Charley
Beetham in the quarter, a great race
is in prospect between the Ohio hero
of the Penn Relays and Stan Birle-
son. When these two raced indoor
here in March, Beetham edged out
Birleson by less than a stride to set a
new Field House record of 50.3.
Although the Wolverines had lit-
tle trouble polishing off the Buck-
eyes in their indoor clash, Ohio State
was without the services of Owens,
and track experts forsee the closest
of battles when these two leading
track contenders of the middle west
fight it out.
Detroit Might Get
Army-Navy Game

Rep. John J. Cochrane, of St. Louis,

Army-Navy football games playedJ

Brevity Is 7-5
Choice As Mud
Covers '.rif
Sixteen Possible Starters
Gather For Blue Grass
C1ou1ntry Classic
LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 30. -(IP)-
Mud that was fetlock deep at the
Churchill Downs oval, a pair of work-
outs by relative longshots that had
the railbirds sitting up to take no-
tice, and obvious signs of a record
post-depression gathering of the
horse clans combined tonight to com-
plicate the fast-approaching drams
of the sixty-second Kentucky Derby.
There's still no doubt that Joseph
E. Widener's Brevity is "the horse to
beat," 7 to 5 choice in a field of 16
probable starters and very likely the
class of the assembled three-year-
olds primed for the classic of the
Blue Grass country.
But the re-action, inevitable when
there's so outstanding a favorite, has
already set in. What with the weath-
er threatening to turn a few hand
springs, the "hunches" taking on se-
rious aspect and conflicting reports
from the feed-box spreading all over
the crowded premises, there's noth-
ing either strange or inconsistent
with this situation.
It's part and parcel of the biggest
horse-racing merry-go-round in
America. It will go right on whirling'
until late Saturday afternoon, by
which time most every expert will
have a severe headache, loudspeakers1
will be wafting the tingling strains
of "My Old Kentucky Home" and up-
wards of 60,000 folk will be yelling
themselves hoarse.
Anything may happen, before or
after the pick of the three-year-olis
spring from the stall-gate at the head
of the quarter-mile stretch, but the
finish is likely to be short and sweet--
all Brevity, in fact.

Varsity Meets
j Northwestern
In Tennis Duel
Match With Wildcats Is
Crucial One; Play Ohio
State Tomorrow
In the first two-day tennis meet of
the year Coach John Johnstone's
Varsity tennis team, which has not
as yet proven whether it is unusually
good or just mediocre, will meet
Northwestern today at Columbus in
a match which will leave no doubt as
to the status of the team in Big Ten
The Purple has strengthened its
already strong team of last year, and
with Don Leavens, a former national
boy's champion, and the well known
Ball brothers, George and Russell,
has a team which is touted to finish
in first or second place in ,the Con-
Coach Johnstone hopes to play a
five man team against Northwestern
but if forced to play the regulation
four man team will have to find
three men on his team that can win
their singles matches since the
Purple's strong doubles combinations
will undoubtedly win both matches
from the Wolverines.
It is therefore up to Capt. Howie
Kahn, Johnny Rodriguez, and Mil-
ler Sherwood to win at least two out
of their three singles matches in
order that Michigan can gain a 3-3
tie or a possible 4-2 victory.
The squad has been practicing in
the Intramural gym for two days on
overheads and service shots, and
Johnny Rodriguez has developed a
cannon ball service that would un-
doubtedly be a great asset if the
match has to be played indoors.
The Varsity netters will meet Ohio
State, tomorrow, as a part of the two
day meet and should have little
trouble in disposing of the Buckeyes
who lost to Illinois, a team which
Michigan defeated, 5-2.
Bob Nihousen, playing first singles
for the Scarlet and Gray, and Cap-
tain Kahn will hook up in a match
that should, according to all indica-
tions, be a natural. The Buckeye
star, like Kahn, has had trouble get-
ting started this season but should
be rounded into form by this time.
Miller Sherwood, Michigan's unde-
feated number two man, will prob-
ably meet some strong competition
in Nist, Ohio State number two man,
who is also undefeated in Big Ten

Yearling ItNeIt Men
Play or Njime.trcals'
With 27 candidates taking part, the
matches to determine the ranking ofS
freshman tennis players began this
According to the system being used
at present, each member of the squad
will play one match with each other
member before the end of the season.
The eight players with the best rec-
ords will receive numerals, providing
they are scholastically eligible.
The large number of candidates
has made it necesary for Coach
Johnny Johnstone to issue orders
that each man play at least thirce
matches a week, so that the tourna-
ment may be finished before the endt
of the semester. Failure to comply
with this rule will result in the play-
ers being dropped from the squad.
